^ There's no "The" in the series title. It's simply STAR TREK: SEEKERS.
I voted for the Klingon series because I miss that different view of the Star Trek world. I thought Vanguard and Mirror Universe had satisfying conclusions so I'm happy to let them be, even though Seekers is coming out, which I am looking forward to. It would also be nice if there was a final NF novel but yeah, I would enjoy more Klingon books the most.
Ok, thanks for the correction.
Yep. They did the original version of "Red Rubber Ball" didn't they? I've heard of 'em. And of course that damn "Georgy Girl"
"Red Rubber Ball" was done by the Cyrcle. It was co-written by Paul Simon (of Simon and Garfunkel) and Bruce Woodley (of The Seekers. (from wikipedia).
The Seekers recorded their own version first, IIRC.
Looks like they all did it in 1966 (along with Neil Diamond and Mel Torme, of all people). The Cyrcle version was the biggest hit, but you may well be right.
Deep Space Nine
I'm with Mooch.
I'm not quite sure what the actual status of DS9 is right now. We aren't getting books credited as DS9, but we are seeing the characters and continuing their stories on a regular basis. It's kind of a weird situation IMO.
I'm probably seeing it a bit to negative, but since DRGIII was practically begging people to buy Revelation and Dust to save DS9 books in several podcasts before The Fall started, I would say DS9 as a separate brand is pretty close to belonging on the list, if it isn't already there.
To be honest, I don't really see a lot of DS9 branded novels in the future, the best we will get most likely is what we have now: DS9 heavy novels in separately branded mini-series/ crossover events.
You know, even though I'm a hardcore Niner, both the series and the novels.... I'm ok with this. I love the new station, the new characters. But things have changed so much, I don't mind so much is DS9 became like Aventine. Featuring a lot, but no series of its own.
However, seeing as how DRGIII left Revelations and Dust with quite a cliffhanger, I don't see them following that up in a different storyline other then a dedicated DS9 novel.
Yeah. Revelations and Dust was perhaps best if viewed as a pilot for a new DS9 series instead of an intro to The Fall specifically; so much good setup there that I'd hate to see go to waste.
I'd give honorable mention to the two trilogies of "Errend" stories by Kevin Ryan, set during and between classic episodes, with a surgically altered Klingon spy serving on the Enterprise. It was really different and fun.
New frontier. It was left on a cliffhanger.
